Let’s see if I get this right. Sweden is to indie pop what Norway is to shoegaze rock. Or so it seems. Check out this Oslo-based shoegaze group calling themselves Simon Says No! and tell me if I’m wrong. Their sound is right up there with fellow shoegaze act Serena Maneesh. Their debut EP Ahoi de Angst will be released on February 2 through Spoon Train Audio in Norway. It’s only 4 tracks long but it leaves me wanting more.
They’ll be in San Francisco performing at Harlot on April 1. No joke!
